Correctamundo.  95% of downloads in the week following the release of 5.0
were for x86.  It doesn't say much about embedded but does tell us that
a very large segment of the user population does commodity hardware.

(What the figures also revealed was that a number of the ports had as close
to zero downloads as matters.  Which is, to be frank, a red flag for
those that are not maintained.)
